This recipe is from the Houston Chronicle. The smell of the bay leaves, while grilling, is wonderful. Throw some on the fire, too, for great aroma-therapy! The time indicated does not include time to prepare the grill.

Nothing like grilling on a fall day. We agree this was excellant! The bayleaves gave it a nice touch. This is a keeper.

This was EXCELLENT! I used my metal skewers cause "me" and wood ones just don't work. I also tenderized stew meat. I love kabobs and always bring home store made ones and they are so expensive. Now I know better. Thanks for a great recipe.
